Error Message-Microsoft access was unable to append all the data to the table

While uploading the excel files into access table I am getting the following error message...

Microsoft access was unable to append all the data to the table ...

In the past whenever I a similar message it was because there were two or more records that had the same primary key value. Sometimes the error message tells you a bit more information about the error.

I would suggest doing the same operation and comparing the original excel file with the access table to see which record was refused. Having found the record, I would would examine it to see if there is a problem with the primary key filed or fields.

By the way, have you any primary keys or indeces defined in your access table?

Hey redgreenred!

  Hopefully this will be a field where the data is always entered.  Find the record with the blank field and you find the offending bit of info.
  remember, it did not block the record append, it only deleted the field content.

  I have seen this on appends or updates where a non-date is being forced into a data datatype field.
  Other mistyped data may cause this but dates are the most prevalent in my experience.
  Search the spreadsheet for data that is in columns that will violate datatype restrictions in the table you are appending to.
